Sapphire HD4850 Reviewgotdamojo06 - June 25, 2008
3DMark06 is one of those benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest breaks out. 3DMark06 presents a severe test for many of today's hardware components. Let's see how this setup fares. The settings we will use are listed below.
- SM2.0 Graphics Tests: GT1- Return to Proxycon, GT2- Firefly Forest
- CPU Tests: Cpu1- Red Valley, CPU2- Red Valley
- HDR/SM3.0 Graphics Tests: HDR1- Canyon Flight, HDR2- Deep Freeze
When it came down to it in the 3DMark06 Benchmark, the Sapphire HD4850 stayed up there with the big dogs such as the 9800 and the GTX 280. I was surprised to see how well the card did when the resolutions kept getting larger and larger. There was only a 2000 point difference between the lowest and the highest resolutions tested.
